Besides being a presenter, I am also a chairman. Building on my experience at BNR Nieuwsradio and RTL I bring content, interaction, and inspiration, in both Dutch and English.
I get the content from a thorough preparation and from my work for radio and TV. There I speak with CEOs and entrepreneurs every day, so I know what is going on in the corporate world.
The interaction comes about by giving people space. As an anchor of a show that brings the latest news in high speed every hour, I am not afraid of unexpected interruptions. As an interviewer I am used to getting to the core in just a few questions. This enables me to optimally use the audience. It helps bringing difficult topics to life, without losing control of the time and the content.
Inspiration arises by bringing out the best in the speakers. Are they nervous? Then I put them at ease, so they also come out well. Are they staying a bit too much on the safe side? Then I don’t shy away from critical questions. I use my female flair and am always able to sense how far I can go.
